Air Force Special Ops Command Wants in on Great Power Competition | National Defense

Air Force Special Operations Command has spent the past two decades fighting low-tech insurgents in the Middle East. But the organization is nevertheless primed to take on advanced adversaries like China and Russia.

There are places where AFSOC can contribute capabilities to theater air component commanders and joint force commanders that would be useful based on experience and organizational competencies.  The ability to operate stealthily and gain access to critical locations is useful in the fight against violent extremist groups and even more applicable for a competition with other nation states but other commands may not be fully aware of the capabilities that AFSOC can bring to the table.
